My Beautiful Kenya

A nonchalant summers breeze seeps silent through a window Left ajar Carries soft memories scent of Warm kenyan musk air Which rests in a deep dark corner Mind Afar Faint distant scratching of Grasshoppers seranading The cumbersome Boa-bob tree Which wavers gently At the now noir sea... As the tiny cream crabs rest their Oh so suspicious eyes Whilst there's still no peace for the wicked Damn mosquitos Fly In my mind to the heavens door Tiwi beach Once stroked its soothing sand Through my course Comforted feet And I know this place Tis beautiful My very just delight By the Indian Ocean on a balcony In the dead of the night x

I've heard Kenya is a most beautiful place, would love to explore and know what animals live there too. Didn't know you were from there but am happy to read your lovely verse.
